Transforming STEM Higher Education: Discovery, Innovation, and the Value of Evidence

"AAC&U’s Transforming STEM Higher Education conference will address the importance of STEM proficiency for STEM majors and nonmajors alike, as well as the importance of empowering the faculty on whom we rely to increase the number of competitively trained and liberally educated graduates. We invite scholars from across the nation to come together to understand, appreciate, and articulate—in new ways—the complexities of undergraduate STEM teaching and the most appropriate and culturally relevant mechanisms for improving it."

General Education and Assessment: Foundations for Democracy

"General education is where students should learn how to think critically, engage across differences, and collaborate with others to examine intractable issues such as hunger, poverty, human rights violations, and refugee and other migrations, as well as their economic, geopolitical, and environmental contexts. Given general education’s capacious and compelling opportunites, how can colleges and universities bridge the curricular and cocurricular components of student and faculty assets and interests to realize its potential depth in learning outcomes and social impact?"
